Is there anything too hard for God? That was the underlining question in Ezekiel's mind when God had to show him that He(God) could reach into the grave and pull out life. God is the author of life. Yet, God had to demonstrate to Ezekiel that dry bones in an open valley would come alive by the preaching of the Word of God. Are there any situations in your life that appears dry, dead and buried. Allow God to speak to your situation. The answer is, "There is nothing too hard for God!"
Humanity is the only part of God's creation that worries. Worry is a control issue. David, the 'man after God's own heart' says in Psalm 23:1, "The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want." Pastor Dickens gives us this verse as the 'stress buster' because we need a solution to worry which leads to stress. She also tell us that stress is the number one cause of most of our problems and it is unhealthy, unreasonable, and unnecessary. So why worry, when you can take God at His Word.
In the Sermon on the Mount after the "Beatitudes" Jesus make a series of profound and compelling statements regarding the church. Not the church building but rather the body of baptized believers. He says to the believers; one, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men." two, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house", three, "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven".
After Peter denied knowing the Lord Jesus the bible said that he wep betterly. The next time he meets the Lord he is asked this very question. "Do you love me more than these". In short, Who do you love?
